A great quality wine for a great quality price. Pale straw with green hues. There are notes of green apple and passionfruit with a hint of freshly cut grass. The palate is light, crisp and refreshing, showing citrus and tropical fruit flavours balanced by the grassy nuances of Semillon. Perfect with fresh fish, seafood or grilled chicken and vegetables.
James Halliday, The Wine Companion "This range benefits enormously from the reach of McWilliam's fruit sources, that stretch from WA to eastern Australia; it's hard to imagine that it could not have some WA contribution even if the sauvignon blanc specific yeast has been used. This has a delicious array of tropical/passionfruit flavours cleansed by citrussy acidity on the finish. Ludicrously good value."
From The Winery
Fruit was carefully selected and harvested in the cool of the early morning. At the winery the grapes were de-stemmed, crushed and chilled with the juice allowed to drain quickly from the skins.
After cold natural settling, the clear juice was racked off, warmed and inoculated with natural yeast strain selected to enhance the varietal fruit characters of the two grapes varieties. The fermentation was slow and cool to assist in retaining natural fruit flavours and aromas. After fermentation, the wine was blended to the style set by winemaking, then prepared for bottling with gentle fining, stabilisation and filtration.
